Cheetahs Running at 60+mph, Shot at 1200fps

An incredible crew from National Geographic and the Cincinnati Zoo have documented cheetahs, the fastest running animals on the planet, running at speeds over 60 miles per hour and have shot them using cameras recording at 1200 frames per second. The result is some amazing footage of the cats running in slow motion, showing just how far their reach is and how their muscles must be reacting.

Justin Blanton points to this video that shows how it was shot.
